Mama

I did not stop to tell you
I didn’t even try
I did not think about it
I’m not real sure why

You are always there for me
And yet this remains
I don’t tell you near enough
That I am just the same

All the things I wanted 
In everything I do
I see that I’m a mirror
Reflecting what is you

I should have told you sooner
I could have let you know
I will always love you
Thanks for helping me grow.




Happy Mother's Day Mama

    This is a wonderful tribute to your mother. I like that you could see your actions are mirrored of hers. A lot of us tend to discount our parents teachings and influence within our lives. Great write. ~Des Juan
